Owning an Oriental rug is a great way to add culture and class to the décor of your home. Use these basic Oriental rug cleaning and care techniques to keep your rug looking beautiful for many years to come.
- Vacuum Regularly
One of the best ways to keep your Oriental rug looking and feeling great in between professional cleanings is to vacuum it regularly. Use a suction vacuum, not a beater brush. Vacuuming will get rid of dirt, dust, and debris that settle into the fibers of the rug. If you remove them before they burrow into the carpet, then it will be easier to keep your rug clean on a regular basis. Make sure to vacuum rugs that experience heavy traffic more often than rugs in rooms that are not often used.
- Get Rid of Stains Fast
Whether your rug is stained by wine or pet urine or dirt and grime, it is important to tackle stains immediately to prevent them from becoming permanent. Use a clean, dry cloth or paper towel to blot up as much of the stain as possible. You can also try to wash stains gently with cool water. Use a small amount of vinegar, one cup per gallon of water, to prevent the colors of the rug from running. Getting rid of stains as soon as possible is integral to keeping your Oriental rug in good condition.
- Employ Professional Cleaners
Call a professional Oriental rug repair and cleaning company to keep your rug in top shape. Make sure to have your Oriental rug cleaned at least once a year or after any major spills or stains. A professional rug cleaning company will be able to get rid of tough stains, while protecting the quality of your carpet.
